THE MARCHANT GROVE QUILT

A CANADIAN RED CROSS QUILT

Reset

The Marchant Grove quilt  is owned by the Imperial War Museum, London, UK and is normally not on display. The museum staff are happy to make the quilt available for viewing, but as it is not always kept in London, it is advisable to contact the museum well in advance of  any proposed visit.

We have a personal interest in The Marchant Grove Quilt as my husband, Fred LaClaire, grew up in Marchant Grove, Saskatchewan and Fred's mother, Mazie (Shillington) LaClaire is the last surviving lady who worked on the quilt with fellow Marchant Grove neighbors.  

Thank you to David and Maxine March who made arrangements with the Imperial War Museum for us to view the quilt.  It was exciting and yet very emotional for us and we were able to take pictures of the quilt and show them to Mom LaClaire when we returned to Shellbrook, Saskatchewan, Canada.
